As part of the Australian Government’s ongoing support for the VET sector throughout COVID-19, eligible businesses can apply for financial support through the Supporting Apprentices and Trainees (SAT) wage subsidy.
Initial support for small businesses who had an apprentice in training on 1 March 2020 has been extended to 31 March 2021, and also expanded to include medium-sized businesses who had an apprentice in training on 1 July 2020.
Employers and Group Training Organisations claiming SAT for wages paid until 31 March 2021, have until 30 June 2021 to lodge their claims for payment.
